  2. Is There a Treatment for Presbyopia?

    Is There a Treatment for Presbyopia?

    If you experience any presbyopia symptoms, such as near vision difficulties, we recommend contacting a nearby eye doctor right away for an appointment. In general, our optometrists recommend contacts, multifocal glasses, or reading glasses to get your vision back on track.

    However, it’s important to know that the right presbyopia treatment lens varies based on your unique prescription. Your eye specialist may recommend another option if they feel a specific type of lens may suit your eyes better or if your presbyopia is accompanied by any other refractive errors or eye issues. 

    No matter how long you’ve had presbyopia, our team can help. 

    Call today to get in for a comprehensive eye appointment with our leading optical team. We look forward to meeting you and helping you see better.
